i have been on mirtazipine for almost 5 weeks to help with sleep. i originally started on 7.5mg, but after 7 days, I increased my dosage to 15mg per doctor's order i was on 15mg for almost 3 weeks. By the end of the 4th week, I noticed my anxiety symptoms get worse and i was only sleeping 4 hours at most. I decided to taper off the meds. i've been on 11.25 for 4 days now. As of yesterday, ive experienced diarrhea, no appetite, a headache (that went away). I don't know if these are WD symptoms or stomach virus. I will say since reducing my dosage, i have gotten more sleep and my anxiety has gone down. Today i feel a littlw brain fog and detached. i am really sensitive to meds, and i am SUPER scared of the WD symptoms especially the hallucinations and mania.
i noticed too that when i'm driving or walking by a pole or a mailbox, from the corner of my eye i think its a person, but then i turn to notice it was just that a pole or a mailbox. i dont know if im being paranoid or if im hallucinating. Has this happened to anyone?
any advice you can give me for tapering off mirt will be greatly appreciated.
